Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine EngineeringWorking with business & organisations
Ways we assist Industry
The department of Naval Architecture Ocean and Marine Engineering is the leader in maritime research and education in the UK and beyond thanks to our global reputation in the field of marine technology, we work closely with industry demonstrating a clear pathway from research towards achieving on the ground industry impact.
Our academics and researchers conduct international leading research. Being the largest naval architecture ocean and marine engineering department in UK and EU we have academics specialised in almost every area that requires attention.
We are very happy to work with industry and help them not only when facing business challenges but also to enhance performance, safety and efficiency.
There are a number of ways that we can work with you, from short and sharp interventions to long-term collaborations. Please see ways of collaboration below.
Continuing Professional Development
If you are looking for advancing your skills in areas that are fundamental for maritime or if you want to catch up with the latest advancements in maritime industry NAOME CPD courses can help you.
We run a number of CPD short courses (on campus or from distance) throughout the year for professionals in the field. We also design tailored CPD courses for your unique requirements. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you want to find out more.
Industrial engagement is a central part of our teaching practice. Every year our fourth and fifth-year undergraduates, and our postgraduate taught masters students conduct individual projects to address key emerging challenges of the maritime sector. We cooperate with companies to define project topics for our students. In an industrial project students are supervised by an academic staff and a representative from the company.
Cooperation in these student projects can be an ideal mechanism for you as a business to gain an appreciation of what our department can do to help resolving your business challenges.
We also encourage our students to take summer internships relevant to their degree, this can be another way to engage with our department which can hopefully lead into bigger collaborations.
We have an extensive range of state-of-the-art technical and scientific equipment and facilities, as well as the academic expertise to guide you. We are actively working with industry to conduct wide range of tests to provide answers to key research questions that are important for the industry. Please have a look at our facilities.
When you need expert advice or some other short-term intervention in the areas covered by our research and teaching, we can provide this on a consultancy basis.
